Furthermore, following her ethos of considering multiple perspectives, she states she "saw something good in Hitler" and calls him a "wonderful painter".

But there were some who expressed bemusement, saying it was typical of Badu to say wild or infuriating things.

Later on, Badu proceeds to declare her "love" for Bill Cosby and praised "what he's done for the world" before dismissing his sexual assault allegations because he might simply be "sick".

"I mean, I'm not Muslim, I'm not Christian, I'm not anything; I'm an observer who can see good things and bad things". Upon being asked about her support for Louis Farrakhan, and his alleged anti-Semitism, Badu says she chooses to "see all sides simultaneously".

Many were dumbfounded by Badu's comments on the controversial figures and shared thoughts of their own. She also seemingly defends Bill Cosby in this interview, so the slander is coming from all sides of the Twitterverse.

In her words, "I don't care if the whole group says something, I'm going to be honest".

In the final scene, Murphy returned home to find that that her former house painter Eldin ( Robert Pastorelli ) was back. Murphy Brown centered on a tough female journalist and never shied away from serious issues like alcoholism.

Badu, who is revered for thinking outside of the box, stepped too far outside of it for some people readers, who are outraged at Badu's answers. I saw something good in Hitler.

Badu told the magazine she recognized that Cosby had perhaps done "evil things".

Badu retracted her statement and said Hitler was a frightful painter and had a awful childhood. In that situation, I want to know what really happened. "I take advantage of it". I don't walk around thinking about Hitler or Louis Farrakhan. "I keep up the idea that I'm mystical". During the interview, Badu says she uses the laws of the universe to find her next baby to deliver. It all depends on the person and their story.

Though Badu admitted that her opinions may go against popular beliefs, she remains adamant in her stance and refuses to budge, despite the risk of being "crucified" for her statements. "The kids need vibrations because their attention span is about three seconds..."

"You can't roll a joint on the cover of a digital download", she explained.
